10 August: Surge in rugby female players

The future of New Zealand rugby appears to be female as surging registrations from women partially offsets the decline in the number of male players. The Deloitte Sports Review: State of the Unions report released on Friday highlighted a collective decline in male player registrations for Mitre 10 Cup [NPC] unions (0.1 per cent from 2016 to 2017) - driven by an 8.9 per cent drop in senior grades (21 year older and over) as they decreased by more than 2,000 registrations. Since 2010, male senior grades have decreased in size by 11 per cent. However, the women's game is moving quickly in the opposite direction, with a staggering increase of 63.8 per cent in senior grade registrations since 2010. Read more here

Today In History
18 August 1962: Jubilant Onslow players chair their big prop and goal-kicker Jim Kinvig off Athletic Park to triumphant strains of the Onslow brass band. Kinvig has kicked the important points as Onslow has buried Marist 14-0 in today’s final match of the season, giving them a share of the Jubilee Cup with Marist. Elsewhere, University consolidate third place by beating last year’s champions Petone for the second time this season, 18-10.
